Families got their hands dirty during a nature day at a south Norfolk primary school.
More than 500 parents and their children flocked to Harleston Primary School yesterday for the annual nature day, which had a woodland theme this year.
Children hunted for teddy bears, and watched birds of prey swoop around the school grounds.
Youngsters from nearby schools including Alburgh with Denton Primary School, Pulham Primary School and Brockdish Primary School joined in the day which they spent pond dipping, making bird feeders and building dens.
The event, which is in its sixth year, attracted more than 300 people.

Emma Johnson, extended schools coordinator who helped to organise the event, said: 'The idea is to bring families together. They don't have to pay to come in and all of the activities were free.'
Toddlers also joined in the fun with a ball pit and soft play area provided by South Norfolk Council.

Jon Nicholls from Wymondham, who took his son, Cohen, 19 months, along to the day, said: 'I don't think there are enough of these sorts of events going on. There's so much stuff which brings families together and it's free.'
Vicky Gateshill, deputy headteacher, said she had received good feedback.
